Tammy is the only child of two Auschwitz survivors. Born after the war, Tammy has spent her life in the shadow of her parent’s past—she wasn’t allowed to cry or even to complain, so instead she whistled. When a stranger begins to open locked doors to her soul, Tammy, now 45, suddenly begins living for the very first time.

WhistleMy Mother Was Mengele’s Secretary is a one-woman show exploring the pain of the second generation of survivors and exposes the invisible yet deep wounds of the Holocaust. A semi-autobiographical play written by Ya’acov Buchan and performed by Hadar Galron, don’t miss this moving story about a woman overcoming all obstacles in the attempt to find love.
